Oriana Fallaci

This from the WSJ's opinion pages is tragic, moving, etc. It's an interview with Oriana Fallaci. She's very interesting, and I don't know her work very well, so I think I'm fixing to learn about her.
How frustrated she sounds. It is a curse of conservatism that as they age, conservatives tend to become more pessimistic (even more pessimistic?).
Nevertheless, I can't shake the feeling that something big, important, and bad is going on over here. Huge demographic and cultural shifts are taking place in Europe, religious freedom -- including the ability to criticize other religions -- is being chopped down, and the EU is currently working on harmonizing sunscreen labeling requirements!
